My review is not good. The staff here do not keep parents informed of all problems, nor will they go out of their way to help. They do as little as possible. It's like dealing with a brick wall.

* In 2011-2012 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in science. The results for English language arts and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles and the science results will be added when they are released in the Fall of 2013.
